“Perefct place for a break in York”
Reviewed 9 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I stayed in this house with my little boy (21 months), my sister and her 2 children (6 and 10) This is a beautiful house perfectly situated on the edge of the city, witihin 5 minutes you were in the centre of York yet the street was so quiet and peaceful. There was plenty of room for all of us and the kitchen is well equipped if you wish to cook whilst there. My nephew loved having the en suite attic room to his self!

The owners were friendly, helpful and welcoming and we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay there.

Highly recommended and we'd love to stay there again in the future.

“Cosy and well equipped house in great location”
Reviewed 8 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

The house was lovely and warm with a real cottagey feel to it, with a wood burning stove and comfy furniture downstairs, and a really well equipped kitchen. All the beds were really comfy and the bedrooms spacious; a young teenager or kid would love the attic room! Bathroom was new, everywhere was clean and there were lots of personal touches to make the house feel cosy. Location is brilliant - just outside the walls - and there was never a problem parking for our two cars. The owners were helpful, even to the point of sending on some of my belongings that i'd left there in error! Thank you!

Review for 12 Waverely Street York.

We were the first visitors to this property which is conveniently located within a few minutes walk off Monkgate which gives you access to the City centre. We parked our car outside the house and did not move it again until we left to drive home!
The house is well appointed and has everything you need; the kitchen is well equipped; having a dishwasher is especially useful. The whole house had been tastefully decorated, retaining its Victorian character. The lounge/dining room is very comfortable and has a wood burner, the weather was cold but we did not feel the need to use it! We have stayed in many self catering properties; this one is at the top of the list.
York is a nightmare for parking but there is no problem on Waverley Street as there is a parking permit, not only can you walk into town, there is a Sainsbury’s supermarket 10 minutes away. We were most impressed with the house and have already booked for next year!

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 2 January 2014 for a stay in November 2013

I booked to stay at Waverley to celebrate my 30th birthday weekend and couldn't have wished for a better stay. Communication throughout the booking process was excellent and made the experience so easy. The house is beautiful, clean and equip with everything you could need for a weekend stay or longer.
The location of the house is excellent and walking distance from York Center (not even 5 minutes away) so is suitable for everyone.
We had a truly enjoyable stay and would happily book to stay at Waverley again....it was PERFECT and would highly recommend staying here.

“Perfect location, host, and home”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

The location was fantastic, Mary the owner was so easy to work with, and so gracious. We had 4 adults and 2 kids and didn't feel crowded at all. It's a short walk to most attractions and close to several grocery stores. If I find myself in a York again I know were I'll stay.

Thank you Mary!
